ClarkCountyToday.com was founded out of a desire for more independent community news.
Clark County and its more than 450,000 residents long ago stopped being known as just Portland’s northern neighbor. We’re a county of large and small cities, and within those borders, residents in communities like the Heights and Felida care to know what’s going on down the street.
Enter ClarkCountyToday.com. Founded by U.S. Digital CEO David Madore, ClarkCountyToday.com is here for you and your increasing desire for more neighborhood and Clark County news. We’re here to tell stories and dispense information about Clark County and its residents.
Our award-winning staff, headed by editor Ken Vance, have decades of experience in the Clark County newsgathering arena. We’ll tell our stories in words, in pictures, through video.
And above all else, it will be news that matters to Clark County. Because the stories will be about Clark County, and Clark County only.
We mean it when we say our motto is “Your News Source With Integrity.” Unlike many media outlets in our area and the country, we will strive to avoid an ideological slant in our stories. Our news will represent the county’s residents by offering fact-based stories that represent all sides.
If it’s an opinion piece, it will be labeled as such. And we’ll have opinion from both sides of the aisle, not just the left-bent we see with increasing frequency.
We think most people prefer their stories to just lay out the facts that allow readers to come to their own conclusion. In other words, the way it used to be done.
“As the journalism industry has continued to evolve over the years, one thing has become obvious: area residents have an almost unquenchable thirst for community news more than any other content. ClarkCountyToday.com recognizes that and will strive to provide Clark County residents with a daily view of timely community news,” Vance said.
Vance said his vision is for ClarkCountyToday.com to serve readers possessing all viewpoints.
“ClarkCountyToday.com will make every attempt to provide community news content that is unbiased, independent and impartial,” Vance adds. “Our reporting will not be ideologically driven. We want to become a place where all residents of our community gather to seek timely news content and share their thoughts about what’s going on in Clark County.”
ClarkCountyToday.com will provide fresh content every day, from community news to local sports to what’s happening on the Clark County business scene. Best of all for the reader, it’s free. No paywall, no seven free reads a month. Free.
